The 2003 issue had a painted cabinet, with wire mesh doors, that looks straight out of a Pinterest 2013 board. ~
Let's go back a little further to April 2001 and we find black and white toile fabric, a picture grouping of vintage florals, postcards in an apothecary jar and a Wardian greenhouse. The chair and the campaign table are painted black. Oh, and check out the lovely hardwood floor!
This room would be very 2013 chic. ~
But, what about way, way back in April 1994? Oh my, a chippy, old white door, a galvanized metal watering can and flowers and herbs in old bottles and jars! ~
No matter how far I go back, the simple, vintage look retains it's charm.
I took a wee peak at the Victoria models. If I had invested in quality clothing, would the styles be classic or dated?
This cocktail dress from 2003 would still work. Chandelier earrings would be nice, but I think the candelabra ring is a bit over the top. ~
And how about this hairdo, linen dress and vest? A natural fibre like linen will last forever, properly cared for. Would you ever guess this is April, 1994? The big trick would be still fitting into it! ~
Fashion comes and goes, but simple, natural, honest design is timeless.
I'm never giving up those magazines!
